Resolutions
A.
Consideration to Approve a Resolution to Increase the Capital Projects Fund for the Northside Lift Station Replacement Project
The bid opening for the Northside Lift Station Replacement Project was held on July 20, 2017 resulting in two bids. The low bid is from Whitaker Construction Company in the amount of $1,582,770.00. This project is being funded through a grant from the Wyoming Business Council ($1,297,000 in program WWNSLS). Public Works proposes to divert $300,000 from the WWUGSL program to provide the necessary funds for this vital project. The WWUGSL project will be deferred to a future budget cycle. 

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution increasing the Capital Projects Fund for the Northside Lift Station Replacement Project, in the amount of $300,000.
VIII.
Council Action Items
A.
Consideration of a Bid Award for the Northside Lift Station Project
The Bid Opening for the Northside Lift Station Replacement Project was held on July 20, 2017 resulting in two Bids.  The apparent low bid is from Whitaker Construction Company in the amount of $1,582,770.00.  The Project includes the replacement of the existing Northside Lift Station with a deeper wet well, new pumps, and a new control building.  Construction will begin in September and is expected to extend into January 2018, with the pumps taking several months to arrive.  The Engineer’s Estimate was approximately $1,020,000 for this work.

Suggested Motion:
I move to award the Northside Lift Station Replacement Project to Whitaker Construction Company in the amount of $1,582,770.00, and authorize the Mayor to sign the Agreement.
B.
Consideration of Release of Partial Retainage (75%) for the 2016 Capital Improvement Project - 2nd South
The 2016 CIP 2nd South Street Project has been completed by DeBernardi Construction Company, short of a few items. The stone Expedition Island sign and information kiosk sign are scheduled for delivery on August 1, the grinding of the road is scheduled by the subcontractor, and DeBernardi Construction is working on replacing the street light that was struck. The rest of the items have been completed, the road has been opened for some time, and the project has been advertised for Final Acceptance. There were no claims on this project.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the partial release of retainage in the amount of $289,089.82 to DeBernardi Construction Company, Inc. for the 2016 CIP 2nd South Street Reconstruction Project.
